This 1962 film about the Big Rock Point Nuclear Power Plant features Hollywood actor Ronald Reagan -- who often worked for General Electric in this era -- as its narrator.  The film was shown at the plant's visitor's center for many years, touting the benefits of atomic fission and showing the inner workings of the power plant. Workers are shown looking down into the reactor where a lead covered "head" shields them from radioactivity. Beneath this head are 56 fuel bundles, containing...

Systems of orbiting neutron stars are born when the cores of two old stars collapse in supernova explosions. Neutron stars have the mass of our Sun but are the size of a city, so dense that boundaries between atoms disappear. Einstein's theory of general relativity predicts that the orbit shrinks from ripples of space-time called gravitational waves. After about 1 billion simulation years, the two neutron stars closely circle each other at 60,000 revolutions per minute. The stars finally merge...

The title and inspiration for this video comes from a phrase in the poem 'Dance of Onions' by Jean Arp first published in 1946. In terms of process I started with some loose ideas, then found the soundtrack I wanted to evoke a certain mood, then built a rhythmic (I hope) set of scenes over the top. All of the imagery and sound was sourced from the public domain repository The Internet Archives, and is used under those licenses.

If was an American science fiction magazine launched in March 1952 by Quinn Publications, owned by James L. Quinn. The magazine was moderately successful, though it was never regarded as one of the first rank of science fiction magazines. It achieved its greatest success under editor Frederik Pohl, winning the Hugo Award for best professional magazine three years running from 1966 to 1968. If was merged into Galaxy Science Fiction after the December 1974 issue, its 175th issue overall.
